Man, Adrenaline was one of the coolest records to hit in 1995. Way way way before the nü metal genre got stale (shit, Life Is Peachy was still a year away), the Deftones proved how far ahead of the music world they were; "7 Words" and "Engine No. 9" still stand today as some of my favorite songs... ever. I drifted away from the band after White Pony (2000) and have been pretty ignorant of anything they've released since but man... that summer of '96 was all about Chino and the boys. Here's an unofficial compilation of demos the band recorded throughout 1992 to 1994. Enjoy.
